Justin Trudeau is self-isolating as his wife is tested for coronavirus

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has officially gone into self-isolation following coronavirus concerns.

His wife — Sophie Grégoire Trudeau — developed flu-like symptoms after returning from an event in the U.K.

According to the Prime Minister's office, her symptoms started last night but have since subsided. She is currently being tested for coronavirus as a precaution.

"The doctor’s advice to the prime minister is to continue daily activities while self-monitoring, given he is exhibiting no symptoms himself," the press release reads.

"However, out of an abundance of caution, the prime minister is opting to self-isolate and work from home until receiving Sophie’s results."

Trudeau will spend the day in briefings, phone calls, and virtual meetings from home.
